Mary and Dan’s casually-chic Country Club wedding has been featured on InsideWeddings.com!! How exciting! Congrats to the lovely couple for having such a beautiful wedding day and beautiful relationship!! <3
I’ve been DYING to share this post since before I even took a single photo! All of my photo dreams came true when both Hannah (of Hanalulu Co.) and Alex (of Alexandra Grecco) agreed to collaborate with me on this inspiration wedding shoot! Watching Hannah, a professional wedding stylist, was just amazing. She crafted an inspiration board for each artist involved, curated materials from dozens of stores, and styled all of our incredible models! After watching Hannah work, it’s safe to say that I’m now not-so-secretly hoping all of my brides hire her to style their weddings! She took my measly Pinterest board and completely upped its game like 1,000 notches! I can’t gush enough! :)
This shoot was styled for the Hello, Artist Workshop hosted by yours truly along with Kay English and Jessica OH! We are so grateful to the Inn at Fernbrook Farms in Chesterfield, NJ for allowing us to roam around their farm for two days causing all sorts of ruckus! But I’ve got a whole separate post dedicated to the fun we had at the workshop! For now, enjoy this daily dose of lovely! <3
How gorgeous is this hair piece made by Viburnum Designs?! I’m so in love!
Sissi Chan is a genius!! You know that “what would you do if you won the lottery” question we all dream about? I know my answer…hire Sissi Chan to do my hair & make-up every single day! ;)
A HUGE thank-you to everyone involved!

Happy 4th of July!!! I’m celebrating by reliving Brian and Cathy’s Memorial Day weekend wedding!! This gorgeous couple was wed at Our Lady of Peace Church in New Providence, NJ and their reception was held at The Wilshire Caterers in West Orange, NJ. Their day was filled with family and friends from all over the globe. Over 350 guests joined them, including family from Canada and Italy! Even with so many people, the day still felt intimate. Everyone was so welcoming and loving and FUN!!
My favorite part of this wedding day was seeing TWO of my past couples!!! Keri (in hot pink) and Dan on the right, and Arielle (in floral print) and Joe on the left!! My only regret is not getting a photo of me with all three lovely brides!! Booooo! :(
Ceremony: Our Lady of Peace Church
Yesterday I shared a gorgeous colorful wedding shoot from Durga-Kali, but today I want to show you just how awesome these dresses are! Each bridesmaid dress reverses into an adorable Little Black Dress! I know, I know…we’ve heard it all before…”and you can totally wear it again!” But I think with these dresses you really can! Durga, you are a genius!
Plus, she has like a bazillion colors and styles! I really think your bridesmaids will adore this idea! Check out durga-kali.com to see more!
I’m SOOO excited that it’s almost summer!! It means bright colors and sunshine and backyard BBQs are on the way! Woo hoo!! It’s also almost time for summer wedding season, and I’m loooving this inspiration shoot put together by Durga Kali! :)
These durga-kali bridesmaids dresses are each reversible into an adorable little black dress, and even the bride’s dress is able to be shortened into a fun and flirty reception dress! Visit the blog tomorrow to see more! :)

Hello, Artist is a two-day workshop for photographers at all experience levels who are looking to enhance their wedding photography business. Topics covered will include: posing, lighting, marketing, pricing, getting published, networking, social media, and more! You’ll receive a private portfolio review and some beautiful new headshots for your website. You’ll get to learn from THREE completely different wedding photographers (Kay English, Jessica OH, and yours truly!), and there will be THREE completely unique styled shoots so you can enhance and diversify your portfolio.
We realize there are many photography workshops out there, so we want to create a distinctive experience that will allow people to find their own style and brand without becoming a cookie-cutter replica of another photographer. Each of us approaches our photography style and business in different, but still successful, ways. In our panel discussions, you’ll have the opportunity to ask us anything and hear varying experiences and stories. Our hope is that you will leave with a renewed love and passion for wedding photography, an excitement for creativity, and insight into your unique style and brand!
